1—God’s Way Is the Only Way That Works

“As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him” (Psalms 18:30 Psalms 18:30As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.
American King James Version×
).

God’s way is perfect and you cannot improve something that’s already perfect. Consider the Ten Commandments: What other religion, leader or false god in history has given a set of laws so relevant and complete? Imagine if every single person in this world would just keep the Ten Commandments. How much better life would be! Living by God’s commandments leads to blessedness and joyfulness. This alone can prove His existence.

2—Secular Evolutionary Theory Lacks Personal Application or Meaning

The only way science can explain how we came into being is the theory of evolution. This theory is based on scientific principles, which, although they are based on observable phenomenon, lack an eternal perspective and are based on assumptions about history that are impossible to prove. In contrast, God has been personally involved with people since the beginning of time. What God has established, nothing can change.

3—Life Without God is Ultimately Meaningless

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man’s all” (Ecclesiastes 12:13 Ecclesiastes 12:13Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
American King James Version×
).

Yes, someone could live a temporally fulfilling and happy life without God, but the greatest hope of someone like that is death at an old age. Or perhaps fame for his or her name beyond that for a few decades or centuries. Ultimately, however, without God, there is no hope beyond the grave. Without God, our life is just as insignificant as any animal on this planet (Ecclesiastes 3:19 Ecclesiastes 3:19For that which befalls the sons of men befalls beasts; even one thing befalls them: as the one dies, so dies the other; yes, they have all one breath; so that a man has no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.
American King James Version×
). Without God, our life is just a blink-of-an-eye existence in the infinite blackness of this vast universe.

But if you include God in your life, then it will never be the same again. You will have found your purpose and meaning for life.

God exists, and you can count on that fact. In times you face the battle against doubts and fears, keep these three points in mind. Most importantly, pray to God for Him to strengthen your faith. God is able and is more than willing to build an intimate relationship with you. So lift up your head and know for sure that He truly exists.
